Galadriel's Prolog Dress / Grey Havens
Prolog Dress (V1.3)
White silk dress with cowl neck. Body of the dress is one pattern thread and pearls. Sleeves, another. Sleeves are not embroidered at top of arm. This is seen quickly in the prolog and then it we it in one of the final bits of Return of the King when the Elves are leaving for the Grey Havens.
We've now expanded this into an entire section... Be sure to visit the sub sections that show just how obsessively we're studying.
(Pictures here come from two sources. Those on the black mannequin are from Casa Loma, 2002 and the "nosier" photos on the white figure are from FIDM, 2002.)
With shoulder cloak
Seen in prolog with a shoulder cloak that appears to be sewing on to the dress. This causes a conflict with the dress exhibited at FIDM, which appears to be the identical fabric, except the cloak has never been attached. Both examples are here now while we work to unravel the mystery. It is possible that two versions of the dress were made and one had the cape added.
